Glendale new home development is “booming”
A “housing boom” in the northwest Valley, including Glendale, Peoria, and Surprise, has realtors commenting that new home subdivision development “on fire.”
Glendale issued 174 building permits for single-family homes in fiscal 2017, up from 42 in 2014.
Recently approved housing communities are smaller than earlier sprawling subdivisions, each being in the 50-home range and filling in developed areas.
Much of Glendale’s growth is in the southwest area.
Sales manager Jim Clark said the homes will average about 2,100 square feet with a tentative starting price of roughly $230,000.
Construction on four new developments is scheduled to begin in August.
